A chain link fence in Raleigh, NC (also referred to as wire netting, wire mesh fence, chain-wire fence, cyclone fence, hurricane fence, or diamond-mesh fence) is a type of woven fence usually made from galvanized or LLDPE-coated steel wire. The wires run vertically and are bent into a zig-zag pattern so that each “zig” hooks with the wire immediately on one side and each “zag” with the wire immediately on the other. This forms the characteristic diamond pattern seen in this type of fence. Let Big Jerry’s Fencing help make installation a breeze.
The open mesh of chain link also means the fence won’t block sunlight to gardens and other areas that crave the rays.
Cost-wise, chain link is cheaper than wood privacy fencing, and chain link lasts longer and requires no finishing.
Standard chain link may all look the same to the layperson, but there are important differences in quality. When shopping for a fence, consider its four main components: the mesh (or “fabric”), the framework (posts and rails), the fittings (ties and clasps that hold it all together), and the coating (for rust-protection and, if applicable, color). Heavier-gauge mesh and framework are stronger and more expensive than lighter-gauge and smaller-diameter material.
